I have bent a few axle shafts/flanges from wheelin. What ya need to do as mentioned, is jack up the rear axle. Block the front tires so it don't roll fwd, then I put it in N so the drive shaft will spin free. Then spin the rear tires and look at the rear brake caliper. If they run true, I leave it alone. If you can see the caliper wobble then your bent. It will eventually eat out a rear wheel bearing, yes I did that also, it will make a grinding howling noise that radiates throughout the jeep.
If you can see it, get it replaced under insurance or it might be time for Chromo axle shaft. Also keep in mind the housing might have gotten bent also. Time for insurance and have the dealership check it out.
